Protect Maryland's babies, bees, food supply, and the Bay

We're raising funds to fight pesticide threats in 2024

We've made great progress in all these areas! With your help this year we'll be able to continue:

  • Providing requested research to Maryland legislators on PFAS pesticides to turn off the tap of PFAS contamination of our crops, soil, water, and our bodies from PFAS-contaminated pesticides.
  • Helping protect our honeybees and pollinations with 4 first-in the nation pollinator-protecting state laws!
  • Promoting healthy soil practices that sequester carbon and eliminate need for pesticides, see our 2023 keynote presentation by world-renowned Dr. Elaine Ingham at our December 2023 conference.
  • Bringing diverse stakeholders together to collaborate through our Pesticides & the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Project Conference and 3 Working Groups focused on Research, Agriculture, and Healthy Alternatives, continuing 17 years of working collaboration.
  • Advocating for health, safety, and environmental justice for food and farm workers who feed us—we've promoted protection policies for these workers since the pandemic began and continue to do so.
  • Advancing our nationally groundbreaking website to identify safer disinfectants, instead of pesticide-registered disinfectants that carry serious health risks for schools, the healthcare industry, and the public.
  • Teaching hospitals and schools how to eliminate using toxic pesticides that endanger patients, students, and staff health.
  • Driving systemic change and consumer demand away from chemical-intensive products and practices to organic via GoOrganicMd.org website's—helping you to "Vote with your wallet, vote with your fork!"
  • Advocating for safe pesticide-free land care in towns and counties.
